it’s all about you

Some of you might still remember how in 2006, Time magazine’s Person of the Year was “you.” The idea was to recognize all of the people who contributed user-generated content—often anonymously—to platform like YouTube, Wikipedia and so on. That idea feels relevant again as I ponder the end of another new year. Essentially, DAMAN is about you. You, the actors, actresses and artists who felt that DAMAN could tell your story. And also you, the models and photographers who chose DAMAN to showcase your talent. Then there’s you, our business partners who believed in the potential and capacity of this magazine then told us “Let’s work together!” And finally there’s you, our readers—old fans, returning devotees and new patrons—for whom these pages are dedicated. The phrase “we couldn’t have done it without…

the pocket ticket

The fall/winter 2019 runway shows gave us a lot of big trends to follow. Eagle-eyed fashion enthusiasts, however, also noted the smaller and not-so-small details that would become the “it” trends of menswear today. And one of those is the oversized pocket. Functional and practical yet fashionable in ways ranging from the subtle to the obvious, oversized pockets can now be found on shirts, jackets, coats or pants spanning the entire spectrum of this season’s fashion. Of course, it pays to keep in mind that just like with any other practical trend, oversized pockets are never meant to be overstuffed.

Swish Swish Much credit must be given to Prada, which revived its Linea Rossa last year in flying neon colors. The return to synthetic, technical materials has swept menswear by storm, merging ideas from streetwear and activewear into a new, futuristic look. It can be delicate, as seen at Craig Green, or survivalist, the way Alyx does it. Whichever vibe you choose, you’ll definitely be swishing and swooshing your way through winter. Bold & Beautiful Loveliness and glamour are not words typically associated with menswear; and yet thanks to designers like Kim Jones at Dior Men and Clare Waight Keller at Givenchy, they are the most essential vocabulary terms of the season. Menswear’s new spirit is louche and elegant, epitomized at Dior and Givenchy, but also celebrated in a tailored suit à la…

Artsy Daisy Well-known as a style icon across Asia, G-Dragon is finally making a comeback in the fashion industry. And this time around, he’s introducing the PEACEMINUSONE x Nike Air Force 1 Para-Noise collaboration. The Korean singer-songwriter really relates to this collection thanks in no small part to the way he’s always been linked to the hip-hop scene. Nike, meanwhile, stated that the sneakers were created based on G-Dragon’s interest in fashion, music, art, culture, sport and everything he’s curious about. Enlarged daisies appear as embellishments on the tongues of the sneakers, with the low-cut AF1 models featuring premium leather uppers painted over with a special black coating that will slowly wear away to show an actual artwork by G-Dragon hidden behind it.
